Anything connected to a network that offers services such as a printer, a router or a web server, provides open ports to accept connection requests. If the correct ports aren’t open on a device, that device won’t function properly. If too many ports are open, the device might be vulnerable to attack. Nmap is one of the most important tools available for cybersecurity professionals, network engineers, and system administrators, Nmap allows you to scan network devices and determine what ports are open so that you can learn what services you’re exposing on a network, verify firewall configurations, and perform testing and troubleshooting. Once we’ve covered Nmaps feature set, you’ll be ready to run Nmap scans on your own network. And if you don’t have systems that you can scan right away, I’ve built some servers that you can scan to get some hands-on experience. Hi, I’m Mike Chapple and I use Nmap almost every day. It’s a fantastic tool and I’m looking forward to sharing it with you. All right, let’s get rolling.
